    Say's Phoebe Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      This slender, long-tailed flycatcher appears large-headed for a bird of its size. The head often looks flat on top, but phoebes sometimes raise their head feathers into a small peak at the back.

      Relative Size

      Larger than a Dark-eyed Junco, smaller than an American Robin.
